USS Enterprise CV-6 by Glenns_TX - Revell - 1/1200 Scale - Plastic - In measure 21 camouflage


Recommended Posts

This kit was purchased from Hobby Lobby several years ago. Since that time like the rest of my kits, it has resided in a closet.

Today I decided I need something “easier” to do while I work on the Bounty. And it just happened my 1/700 Hornet by Trumpeter arrived. So like the Arizona, I’ll gain some experience with this $6 kit.

 

So far the main difficulty was finding Navy Blue 5-N. No one had it here. So unless I find some, I plan to mix a 3:1 ratio of Model Air insignia blue with black. The blue is FS35044 while 5-N is 35045.

It’s a waterline kit. Another first. Guess I’m making an ocean too.

Cleaned the parts last night. This morning removed hull sections. Cleaned up any flash. Glued hanger deck to bottom hull. Filled and sanded where needed. Will prime later. Working on some Polar Lights Original Series Star Trek Kits to. And those  needed more filling. Prefer to prime all three kits together.

I am curious to see the aircraft on the deck! They must be smaller than ants!

Sprayed everything with primer tonight. Anyone know what Enterprise’s hanger deck colors were?

 

CV-6 was easy. The Star Trek Kits gave me more fits. The Klingon ship has chrome pieces which needed to be masked. The Enterprise’s pylons and one engine still refuse to give up their seams.

I suspect that it was much like modern carriers.   White on the bulkheads and overhead and gray linoleum or no-skid on the deck.  It's pretty dark on the hanger deck and the white does a good job of reflecting light.

Well they’re not ready for the deck. But here they are. I’m sure you know the boxes on the matt are 1” square.

They are bigger than I thought they would be! About 3/8" wingspan maybe a little more. Are they supposed to be Hellcats?

Haven’t done much with this cause it’s been too cold and we to paint. But tonight, I sanded the additional filling I added Monday. And decided the hanger needs only grey primer for the deck and white for ceiling and walls. Painted the ceiling tonight. Also spent time searching for an 8” bottle with a 1.5 to 2 inch opening.

Might I suggest a clear glass jug that is used to brew beer in? I have one of those and I am planning on figuring out a way to custom build a boat to stick in there one day...I looked at the measurements one day and I am pretty sure its 13" diameter, 10" high...the opening is only about 1" but it would be easy to cut a bigger hole.

Seems I read somewhere that linoleum was removed because of the fire hazard, a big concern on any ship.
